    1- There is no chance for mistake.

    2- There is no room for mistake

    Neither works for me. It isn't clear what you mean- do you mean that you don't think many people will attend?

    Thanks.
    I wanted to say' I don't mind attending the party.'

    I wanted to say it in different ways.

    Re: Are they right?

    Hi nado,
    You posted that question before. There's no way I can think of to change your original sentence and use the word "attended" to keep the same meaning. It's a bad question.

    For your second post:
    1- There is no chance for mistake. -- It's foolproof. You can't make a mistake. It's impossible to make a mistake.

    2- There is no room for mistake. -- It must be done correctly. If you don't get it exactly right, it will fail.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    peace be upon you.

    thanks for everything.

    Believe me ,this question was in one of the last year exams here in Egypt.
    So I ' m trying hard to find any acceptable answer to it.

    Thanks again

    Okay - here's one: If it turns out that I attended the part, that would be okay.

    Terrible, isn't it? It's a bad question!
